We are still receiving some great new gear for the colder temperatures ahead. Our whole beanie rack is loaded with all the new hats from Simms and Patagonia and we have some new colors in jackets that we have talked about in earlier posts. One of the coolest things we have now though is the Simms Cold Weather shirt. This shirt looks like any other plaid button up, but is heavily insulated to keep you warm. This will be an awesome shirt for fishing in the fall, but also a good run around shirt to use from now until spring. This really is a great new shirt so be sure to come check it out!


On another note, we FINALLY have some dyed grizzly Euro saddles from Whiting. We have thirty six saddles (twelve each of Burnt Orange, Burgundy, and Purple). With the hair extension craze over I would anticipate these to be around for a while. There are a lot of suppressed fly tiers out there though, so if you want some you probably want to come sooner rather then later!

We have a SWEET deal for you guys in the shop right now. We just received ten Redington “Torrent” packages in the shop today and they are awesome. The rod feels and looks just like a rod that costs twice as much. Combine that with the Surge reel and you have a great set up. The package comes with a Redington Torrent Rod (8’6 5Wt, 9′ 5Wt, and a 9′ 6Wt) Redington Surge Reel, and a travel carrying case. The whole package is valued at $365.00, but we are selling them for $249.95! If you are looking to add another rod to your arsenal, or already thinking about holiday season gift ideas, this is it!

More new tying materials today! First off, we have four new colors of Dyed Peacock Sticks from Natures Spirit. In the past, all of the sticks we have carried have been dull in color, but the new stuff is very colorful. The new colors are yellow, red, fluorescent blue, and purple. You could use this new stuff to spice up old peacock patterns to give them a new look.


Second, we have some awesome new “frostip” rabbit strips from Hareline. All of the strips have a black base but the tips are dyed in different colors like white, chartreuse, burgandy, olive, and orange.

We just received an order from Hareline and there is some great new stuff in the shop. We have new colors of rabbit, flashabou, and a brand new product called Senyo’s Wacko Hackle that I think you guys are really going to love. It is designed to be used on steelhead flies like intruders, but in other colors it could be used on streamers and even braided out and used on smaller nymph patterns. This new material will give your flies a great new look. Check out the Steelhead flies tied with Wacko Hackle in the image below, they look awesome!

None of the other new materials we received have pictures online yet, so you will have to come in and check them out!

With the “cooler” temperatures we have been having lately, a lot of guys have been coming in asking about when we are going to put our Steelhead flies out, well we did today! We have all the standby patterns in stock as well as a bunch of new stuff. The new stuff looks awesome, especially the skating dries.

Sticking with the Steelhead theme, we have another new jacket in the store from Simms called the fall run jacket. This will be a great insulator piece or a stand alone peace during nice fall days. Below is what Simms has to say about the new jacket.

“Fall migrations go in several directions. Upstream for giant browns en route to their natal dancing grounds. And virtually any points north, east, south, and west, depending on which direction you travel to intercept banner autumn fishing. Wherever you roam, throw on a Simms’ Fall Run Jacket for lightweight, packable performance in the form of PrimaLoft® One insulation. Jackets feature a winning warmth-to-weight ratio and the water repellency to take on wet conditions the world over.

  • Lightweight, packable PrimaLoft® One insulation to keep you warm even in wet conditions
  • PrimaLoft® One insulation offers the best warmth-to-weight ratio available and has superior water-repellency
  • PrimaLoft® One fibers are highly compressible & soft – like goose down yet maintains insulating properties even when wet
  • Hand warmer pockets and zippered chest pocket
  • Classic diamond quilting pattern with reflective logos
  • Corrosion-resistant YKK® zippers utilize nylon coil and slider”

The Jacket comes in Fury Orange, Khaki, and Dark Gunmetal. We have the Khaki in stock but could easily get any of the other colors in for you.

Alright the first new item were going to talk about is the new Bulkley Jacket from Simms. This will be a great jacket for Steelhead season and all other Fall fishing applications. Below is what Simms has to say about the Bulkley,

“As kids we dreamed of Disneyland, “the happiest place on earth.” But since discovering the Bulkley, we’ve found a new source for supernatural smiles. Simms’ Bulkley jacket combines a GORE-TEX® 2-layer shell, with the innovative all-weather insulation of PrimaLoft® One technology. River-inspired features include corrosion-fighting Nylon YKK® zippers and sliders, super-sized chest and fleece lined hand-warmer pockets, and the water-resistant convenience of easy-cinch cuffs.”


Come check this jacket out, we have a size run in the shop and would love to show you the new jacket.
